Man that is an excellent find. Id say it has to go on the list for the top finds of the year! Much envy this causes. Glad you had thatmoney right then that deal might never happen again anywhere.

Normal wear. It's just an epoxy type finish on the slide. Anywhere it rubs, or takes an impact, it will come off...

Nice gun and you paid a good price. Anytime you can score a BHP LNIB for under $600 these days you did good.

Here is my Practical which I am going to send off to Don at Action Works on of these days.

RE: picked up a Hi-Power on the cheap!


My first BHP, I found at my 'local armourer', for $500.00. It is a Mark II in blue. It is a sweet shooter, and made me a believer. Now, I own TWO! The second one is a 2009 Mark III in what some would call an abomination, being coated in digi-camo.

Enjoy your Practical!!
